Evaluating the role of current semantic web technologies for improving discovery, accessibility and interoperability of ecological and environmental data

Principal Investigators:

David A. Vieglais

The Semantic Web offers the potential for previously unrealized level of data integration for scientists working on complex, interrelated data sets such as are commonly found in biodiversity and ecological studies. The primary goal of this internship is to evaluate the practicality of using semantic web software tools to augment existing metadata catalog applications such as Metacat, and data access environments such as EarthGrid (formerly the EcoGrid of the SEEK project) being used by ecologists and environmental scientists. The practicality of... more
